LGBTQIA+ Early Years Magazine & Resources

About our Magazine
The LGBTQIA+ Early Years magazine is all about being able to openly discuss and challenge our thinking to make our Early Years settings and practice a true reflection on our diverse society today.

This publication has been a labour of love, not just because of the LGBTQIA+ nature of its content, but the fact that it has brought so many professionals together to discuss the true meaning of inclusive and representative practice within our settings.

The download is currently Free, but we recognise that some Early Years settings don't have the tools to be able to use this within their settings. So if you are a setting that does not have IT equipment or you are facing hardship, we want to help. Email AaronEarlyYears@outlook.com and discuss the options of getting your Free* copy of a physical magazine.

*to enable us to provide the magazine to as many settings as possible, we may ask you to pay towards the cost of the postage which is currently £1.50

Please note: the free copy of the printed magazine is only available for Early Years settings; if you work in other areas of the Sector and would like a copy, the cost is £4.00. 

The articles in this magazine have been provided through the experience of each of the authors and has been written with that in mind. It is meant to be used as an opportunity to reflect on your position when discussing LGBTQIA+ and starting your journey of representation. It is in no way an expectation that this magazine is the way to approach your practice and we are not saying that the articles within this magazine is the only way to approach such matters. It is important as professionals that we know what is best for our children within our care. But, it is meant to be an opportunity to take on board what is being stated. Another clarification is that all the Authors work across the whole sector of the Early Years. This includes Maintained ,Private, Voluntary and Independent Early Years settings and Schools. By downloading this magazine you have taken on board the points raised above.
